I wasn’t aware of Jaylon Smith and googled his Wikipedia page. After his injury, he was drafted in the second round by the Cowboys and played for 6 years whilst earning, according to the always suspect Wikipedia, over $30,000,000.
Did his loyalty to Notre Dame have anything to do with that? I don’t know, but I hope so.

Before his injury he was projected as a top 5 draft pick. If he sat out the bowl game his career earnings would have been at least $10M more

Good or bad, it's a trend.
